Princes and painters in Mughal Delhi, 1707-1857 by William Dalrymple( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the years 1707 and 1857, the cultural center of Delhi in North India was the locus of a dramatic shift of power with the decline of the Mughal Empire and the rise of the British Raj. This critical transitional period altered Indian culture, politics, and art, and brought unprecedented artistic innovation and experimentation. The artistic flowering of this time is evident in jewel-like portraits, miniature paintings, striking panoramas, and exquisite decorative arts crafted for Mughal emperors and European residents alike. Sumptuous color illustrations of such works illuminate the pages of this book, painting a vivid portrait of this important city and its art, artists, and patrons. Masterworks by major Mughal artists, such as Nidha Mal and Ghulam Ali Khan, and works by non-Mughal artists demonstrate the dynamic interplay of artistic production at this time. This largely overlooked period is explored in thought-provoking essays by a panel of distinguished scholars of Indian art, history, and literature to present an engaging look at this dynamic artistic culture in the midst of rapid change
Delight in design : Indian silver for the Raj by Vidya Dehejia( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Delight in Design is a richly Illustrated volume that focuses on the remarkable ornamented silverware produced by Indian craftsmen during the period of the British Raj. Silversmiths created elegant silver tea services, bowls, wine and water ewers, beer mugs, and goblets to adorn the sideboard or mantelpiece in a British Raj home, producing European forms fulfilling European requirements. These same silversmiths then adopted a unique manner of embellishing these objects with a variety of different motifs that reflected local taste and carried a recognizably local pattern. A tea service made in Kutch would feature heavily embossed work, perhaps with a wonderful twisted snake as its handle, and a magnificent elephant head where its spout emerged from the pot. If made in Madras, the teapot would be decorated with images of gods being carried in temple processions to the accompaniment of music and dance, giving this ware the designation of Swami (god) silver. If from Calcutta, it would bear a series of rural scenes - men and women carrying water, husking grain, or ploughing fields, against a backdrop of palm trees and village huts."--Jacket

Art in between Empires : Visual Culture and Artistic Knowledge in Late Mughal Delhi, 1748-1857 by Yuthika Sharma( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using a body of previously unexplored maps and cartographic drawings I show how painters used topographic markers to illustrate Mughal presence using both European and local conventions of drawing. Such works, I argue, also initiated the creation of visual histories of later Mughal rule at Delhi, as they pictured events often discussed in private correspondence, such as the famous bazgasht or Return of Shah Alam II (r. 1759-1806) to Delhi that marked the re-establishment of the Mughal house Delhi in 1772. Paintings produced in the royal court of Shah Alam II reflected upon the historical legacy of Mughal ideas while referencing the emotive context of Indo-Persian and Braj bhasha poetics that constituted the wider expressive culture of this period. Composed by the Delhi painter Khairullah, court scenes played upon the metaphorical significance of the long lost Peacock Throne of Shah Jahan re-imagining it within the space of the later Mughal court - thus creating a formidable visual imperial identity for the veteran blinded emperor Shah Alam II
